Muddy walk

Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Our nine Bronze participants are preparing for their practice expeditions in West Sussex over the Early May Bank Holiday. They'll be camping at Gumber Bothy, on a National Trust working farm high in the Downs, two miles from the nearest road. Five of them have come through the Young Venturers programme last year, but for the other four, this will be their first taste of expedition camping.

Young Venturers

We've had twelve young people out on map-reading practice walks recently. The younger group (Year 7) braved the extensive mud on the paths around Medstead, while the older ones (Year 8) walked on the sandy terrain near Frensham — but still managed to encounter some pretty horrendous muddy patches! But play-parks on both walks proved popular!

The Year 8s are now making final preparations for their expedition in mid-May; they'll be walking from Alton to Selborne, where they'll camp in a field in a quiet location near the village. The Year 7s are also planning their walk, which they'll be tackling a week later.
